Description

A warm and soft throw handwoven in a mix of pure wools and alpaca. Three strips of contrasting colour make up the width of a single bed, each piece joined and edged with a row of crochet.  It will add a vibrant splash of colour to any decor while also providing warmth on a chilly winter’s day. Wrap it around yourself while you snuggle up with a coffee and your favourite book on a relaxing sunday morning, Or throw it over a chair or bed when visitors come.

The alpaca yarn for this throw comes from our own small herd of alpacas or those of a neighbouring farm.  The fleece is processed locally and is a truely sustainable and ethical product. The wools come either from my own long held stash or was a treasured find in one of the op shops I regularly visit.  I wove the throw on my Saori floor loom. I wanted the throw larger than the loom allowed, so I decided to do it in three sections. Of course this also opened up lots of design opportunities, which is always my favourite part of the whole creativity process. To tie the three distinct colour together, each strip has pops of a contrasting colour.

Wool & Alpaca

The throw measures 143cm long by 96cm wide.
